Should I move my business to the cloud? This is a question asked frequently by business owners nowadays. In modern day society, the majority of small-to-medium business’s run 75% of their workloads in the cloud. Cloud computing can be greatly advantageous to your business or it can potentially be detrimental, depending on the business’s model. Therefore, it is important to assess each business individually. If you’re struggling to find out whether you should implement cloud computing in your business’s network, get in touch with us. We’ll help you make the right choice for your business’s needs.
There are various benefits to cloud computing which make it a favourable choice for most businesses. In order to understand the extent of these benefits, it is important that you have an understanding of the different types of cloud services. There is the Public Cloud, Private Cloud and Hybrid Cloud.
The Public Cloud refers to computing services offered by third-party providers over the internet. This includes services such as Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services. The Private Cloud, on the other hand, refers to computing services offered over a private internal network. This is usually specifically for a single business’s use. The Hybrid Cloud utilises Private Cloud and Public Cloud which allows businesses to take advantage of cloud bursting. Cloud bursting features greater disk space and scales computing services to the public cloud when the demand increases.
Cloud computing has a great amount of benefits. These benefits will allow your business to expand faster and with more ease.
